While its functionality might be a very important aspect, there are several other factors you should consider before you buy a sleeper. As with any piece of furniture consider your needs. The most important thing to consider whether it will be primarily used as a bed or for seating.
A queen size sleeper sofa can easily seat three, and can provide a comfortable bed for two people. It will measure approximately 84 inches wide and be about 90 inches long when the bed is opened up. If the sleeper is going to be used every night for sleeping, a full-size sleeper sofa is what you need even if you have a tiny space. An adult might find a twin-sized sleeper too small and restricting for everyday use, and, in a pinch, a full-size sleeper can even sleep two. But again if two people are going to use it regularly, the full sized sleeper might not be very comfortable or spacious enough.
Measuring is not just to get the sofa inside, but also to make sure it is the correct fit for the room. Whether you are placing it against a wall or sitting it in an open space, it needs to fit that space. You also want it to be the same scale as your other furniture and the room as a whole.
